The Legacy | Elle Kennedy

It was alright. Although one of the reviews that I read mentioning that this book made them kinda dislike the characters and I feel this is true. I did not like the drastic personality changes.

This book is horrifying… in a good way! I am honest to god spooked by this book. The situation is dire and the details are spookily specific… definitely not for anyone who gets scared too easily.

Untitled for Now | Desiree Moore
Mehso-so

This book held a medium pace with a great plot line. It felt more real and engaging than some movies are. The women in the book is forced to deal with unspeakable trauma. When faced with breaking the cycle with her own daughter, we see how difficult that choice can be and how much sacrifice must be made.

Ok so.. I picked this book off of the sale rack at B&N one day not really expecting much. I honestly thought it would be a YA read about some teen girls playing witches. Though when I started reading it I quickly realized that this is not at all case. This book hit heavy on young women dealing with the patriarchy and sexual assault. It talked about the true nature of womanhood and the need for revenge.

Once again I am loving Elle Kennedy and all that she writes. The main characters of Grace and Logan really hit home in this one and I feel as though their journey could have been a real one with lies, jealousy, hurt, trauma, and repair.

The way this book touches on mental health was so amazing. It is hard to believe that the author was only 19 when she wrote this but I can also relate. Tori Spring is the epitome of young women isolating and trying to coping through mental health alone while feeling the pressure of school, family, and social life. And just like reality, it all and switch in an instant. Much love for this book, for Tori, and for Alice Oseman.

February reads!!! My #1 is a tie between “The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo” and “Heartstopper”! They were both so amazing. I wish I could read them for the first time all over again.

ShelleyBooksie Agree - I haven't yet read 5, but I love Heartstopper 1-4. 3mo

2 girl, 1 imposter. 3 parents, 1 uncle. Many secrets that all lead to one grandmother. This book so far has been pretty mid. I thought it would be better but I also think spring semester has been making reading more difficult!

This book was exactly as it was described to be. The descriptions of the Eucharist were great but I felt a little underwhelmed by some of the stories and the lessons.

I‘m not sure what pushed me to read this book this week. Saturday I was sitting upstairs getting ready for a baby shower when I saw it sitting on my shelf and just had the urge to read it.
I must say, for going into this book blind (I got it from my sister) it‘s going pretty well and I‘m enjoying it more than I thought I would considering the plot.

So I‘m about 1/4 into this book and it‘s taking me a while to read it. I think it‘s mainly due to how much school work I‘ve been doing and how much I‘ve been working! (Peep the pink scrubs 👀) I‘m hoping to spend some more time this weekend reading it and hopefully relaxing before Midterms start!

Honestly can say that I was bored by this book. I thought it had potential and could have been a good read but I just did not vibe with it. Amy from Kansas was just a little to lack luster and the insta love romance was not it. The characters were not developed and we kept switching who was involved with very little detail.

This book touched on the topics of race, politics, family, manipulation, and almost a coming of age story as it follows Emira Tucker through her struggles of working as a family babysitter, going through a relationship, and dealing with a boss who romanticizes Emira. This book is what I‘d consider a should read for young women.

At first I had a hard time with this book. The beginning was good and then the middle was a little slow. Once I started to read it again I was hooked! If I had just read a few more pages I would have hit the best plot twist and been entranced once again. And let‘s just say, I need more Ravi and Pippa!!!

So far it‘s been such a heartfelt and emotional story… I wish these boys and family could have received the Justice that they deserved. A devastating MN story that happened in Minneapolis MN, that was never solved despite the family never giving up on the missing brothers.

Honestly not that great. I opened this book knowing that I wasn‘t going to love it because I didn‘t really like the first one. Kind of a disturbing book. And not in a good way
